The Cotswold Way is a designated 'National Trail' that runs along the Cotswold Escarpment for a distance of 102 miles between the Gloucestershire village of Chipping Campden and the town of Bath. The starting point - or end point, depending on which direction you are going - is outside the Town Hall in Chipping Campden, where it is marked by a large stone with a plaque. Whilst the Cotswold Way has been actively promoted as a long distance path, it was only in 1998 that it received government endorsement to be developed as a National Trail and it was launched as such in 2007, making it the newest of the 15 specially designated trails.
